The Paradiski area has a fantastic mixture of beautiful tree lined pistes, wide open ski parks and picturesque villages. There is an English speaking ski school (ESF) in La Plagne 1800 which caters for all abilities. We have also used Oxygen Ski School in La Plagne Centre as these provide a pick up and drop off service for those booking their ski school.
The village is served by a free bus service, therefore, a car is not necessary.. However, if you do plan to drive, you will find parking easy and free of charge at all ski lift car parks.. Please note: all locally hired cars are fitted with winter tyres, therefore if you intend to bring your own vehicle snow chains are a must. (in fact it's the Law). Please make sure you practise fitting and removing them before leaving home! All cars hired from Geneva (Swiss side) during the winter period have winter tryes fitted as standard.

Crete cote, with its beautiful modern chalets, is a 5 minute (free) ski bus ride from the nearest lifts at La Plagne 1800. This pretty little town is spread across a steep hillside and is a short lift ride away from Plagne Centre, and the slightly higher areas of Aime-la-Plagne, Plagne-Soleil and Plagne-Villages. Over a low ridge, beyond the last two, are Plagne-BellecÃ´te and Belle-Plagne above it.
Outside the main bowl, at the northern edge of the area, are Les Coches and Montchavin. At the southern edge is rustic Champagny. Beyond Aime-la-Plagne, at the western edge, is growing Montalbert. These are described later in the chapter.
A free bus system between the core villages within the bowl runs from 06.30 until after midnight. Lifts between some resort units run until 1am.
In the summer months it is perfect for walking and cycling, both road and mountain biking.
You will find the local tourist information office, supermarket, bakery, ski hire shops, ski school and restaurants in La Plagne 1800 which is a 3 minute drive away. La Plagne offers 220km of pistes and is ideal for all standards of skier and there is plenty of opportunity to practise off-piste powder.
